I spent two weeks here with a great crowd of travellers.its in a great position for food,beach,shops and diving.the staff are super friendly and helpful.the bedding is changed every day.the pool,garden and tv area are great for socialising.the only down side is the dorm only has one shower and toilet.and the door to the toilet is a bit tricky.sharp wooden decor frame(no good for tall people).and you can stub your toes on the steps,which I did.if this hostel had an outside toilet and a cocktail bar it would be perfect.

It's so good the people who work here are the nicest people I've met so far it's super clean and they've got a great swimming pool what you get for the money you pay is definitely worth it. They really go the extra mile to make sure you are enjoying your stay and will provide you with great information of the area.

This is quite a nice hostel at a reasonable price with a pool and OK location.The BIG problem is BEDBUGS,I don’t think they know how to deal with the problem and myself and another girl got covered in bites.The next day I looked a real mess and left.If it didn’t have this problem it would be a good choice.Maybe better ask about the BEDBUG problem before you book in here.Some people in the room weren’t effected so I don’t understand that.

Room Tip: Ask weather they have sorted the BEDBUG problem

Hi,I can see that you based your review upon staying in December,true we had problem with bed bugs 2 months ago,it was really difficult to eliminate as other dormitory in town had same problem and guest migrate spreading bugs around Sanur.
I am confuse though if you really experience bed bugs recently could you spare a minute and let us know which bed you got and maybe you remember which bed that girl had also,we regularly have pest control agains bed bugs,just in case,so your info will help a lot,
Thank you!

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights as a stopover between Nusa Lembongan and Gili Islands.
We were both pleasantly surprised of how good the room looked as we arrived. Big room with a comfortable bed (soft for South Asian standards). Nice bathroom with good pressure warm shower. I would though prefer if they installed a real bathroom door for a bit of privacy instead of the 'blinds-door' they have now. Nice, little pool right outside our room and also a outdoor 'common room' and kitchen with free water to fill up your water flasks. Free breakfast delivered to your door every morning at 8am (coffee/tea and toast with omelet). They thoroughly clean your room every day. Staff are very friendly and helpful even though their English skills might not be the best. A nice little peaceful place close to the beach (5-10 min walk).
Sorry, put Terrible on Fitness and Spa since there is none at the place.

Absolutely the worst sleep I have ever tried to get in Indonesia so far! The dorm is right above reception, and next door to one of the loudest bars in town. The walls are paper thin, so just when you think you might get to close your eyes, a motorbike rolls past and you feel like you're in the middle of the road. Not to mention, the smallest bathroom (toilet,sink, cold shower) which you must share with the 7 other people in the dorm. Actually ended up leaving the homestay at 1 am because of lack of peace and checked into a hotel down the street. The staff was friendly and the pool nice, but I highly recommend you DO NOT make the mistake of staying in the dorms!

Dear guest

Sorry to hear your experience and sad that we could not meet your expectations.
We have 2 dormitory rooms ,one in garden and one at the top of reception,it use to be located in quiet road but as Sanur develop,the only guarantee quiet night sleep dormitory its the one in a back.However it tends to book quite quickly especially in festive season.
We will start selling simple practical things our guest might need,one of them will be ear plugs for better quality of sleeping.
We hope it will help our guest to fully enjoy our cute Homestay once again!

We only stayed for 2 nights but really enjoyed Cafe Locca. Each room has its own little garden with a porge. In front of a swimming pool. It's a 10 min walk to the beach but you can rent bikes from the hostel. The rooms are basic but clean. The staff is very friendly and helpful. It's a really good deal.
